Took my wife to Marina Cafe for her birthday, while in Destin on vacation. It came highly recommended from friends of ours. I must remind you that this is a fine dining establishment, so the prices are quite high. However if you go between the hours of 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. they will give you two meals for one,... More

My family & I came to destin for our yearly vacation. I have eaten at this restaurant before, but this was the first time for the rest of them. The food was so good, & the service was really good too! The coconut pie was probably the best! If you are in Destin, you should definitely give them a try....you... More

Great view, wonderful service and fabulous food! The restaurant has plenty of parking. The front isn't very impressive but once you get inside you see it is right on the water. Great views while you enjoy your meal. Our service was great. As for the food, the portions are not huge but right sized for a meal. We had sushi,... More

We eat at the Marina Cafe every time we visit Destin. It is a white table cloth and wine list kind of place. They are not snooty, it just may not be the best choice for little kiddos. My daughter (18) asked for a substitution of the accompanying vegetable and the waiter gladly agreed to the change. The fish was... More

If you are ever in the Destin area it would be very much worth your while to make Marina Cafe a part of your trip. The place is first class from the time you walk in till the time you leave. The service and food is absolutely amazing. Wally is the hardest working manager I have ever seen in a... More

The location, overlooking Destin harbour is beautiful. The staff are all attentive and professional. The food was delicious and the wine list extensive. If you happen to be an early diner, there is a special which makes the pricing more affordable.

This might have been on of my favorite restaurants I have ever visited. It's a toss up between this and top of the world in Las Vegas. The food was incredible. I mean, incredible. It's a great place to take your date for a romantic getaway. It's pricey, but well worth the cost. I will be going back again. I... More

My husband and I had reservations and we accidentally booked for Sunday, not Saturday, but didn't realize until later on. The manager came over (didn't say a word btw about it being the wrong day) got us the table we wanted all while smiling and not being bothered. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, the food was magnificent, and it... More

$2 Drinks for Happy Hour/Ladies night and wonderful inexpensive appetizers, all with a nice view of Destin Harbor. Only problem is summer time traffic if you aren't staying close by. It took us over half an hour to get there from Seascape.
